About the Event
This powerhouse singer and piano player still rocks in today’s retro-pumped music business and is as energised and creative as ever.
Brian Cadd’s career began with the iconic Australian band The Groop in 1966 and he wrote all of their many hit singles and albums including Woman You’re Breaking Me and Such A Lovely Way. He then formed Axiom with Glenn Shorrock, heavily influenced by The Band and dubbed Australia’s first supergroup, he was the primary songwriter and penned hits including Little Ray of Sunshine, Arkansas Grass and My Baby’s Gone before the band broke up in England in 1969. Returning to Australia he joined Fable Records as head of A&R and chief producer. Fable launched a rock label called Bootleg Records in 1972 and Brian ran the label as well as being its’ first artist. The label became the most successful independent record company in the history of Australian popular music up to that time. The next few years saw many gold and platinum records as a solo artist and an array of prestigious awards for film scores, title songs and TV themes. In addition he produced many acts and wrote much-loved hits including Ginger Man, Let Go, Don’t You Know It’s Magic and Alvin Purple. During this period, following the enormous success of his first eponymous album Brian Cadd, he recorded several more giant albums including Parabrahm, Moonshine and the platinum soundtrack to the worldwide-acclaimed cult surf movie Morning of the Earth.
In February 2019 Brian released Silver City, an album that takes his musical history and consolidates it into a remarkable journey. Produced in Nashville by Mark Moffatt, Silver City forges the path that began when Brian first heard The Band’s Music from Big Pink in 1968 in the Easybeats’ London flat which recalibrated his destination as a songwriter.
The music of Brian Cadd has endured since the 1960s. Silver City is testament to his relevance today. Brian Cadd remains one of Australia’s greatest treasures; a true Statesman of songwriting and recording.
